Enjoyed the flight attendants and a smooth ride
Food needs to be a part of the flight. Those snacks are ridiculous already. Our boarding was fine because we have high membership with American express and delta rewards. Crew were great and especially the pilots.
The flight attendant who served snacks/drinks on the MSP-BDL flight on Monday Jan. 31 was SUPERB. I am deaf and it is impossible to communicate with people wearing masks. She didn’t skip a beat, or look frustrated (or disdainful)… she just immediately set to typing/texting notes with me on my phone! <3
Crew couldn’t have been better. Bathrooms were especially clean. Plane was very clean. Everyone wore mask and felt safe. We had a plane switch due to a mechanical problem but it was only a 40 minutes delay and we were informed the whole time.
Pros: "Comfy without the middle seats being filled! Good entertainment and inflight wifi!"
Cons: "So over gold fish and biscoff cookies! I know with Covid it really affected meal service but Delta’s meal service is pathetic!"
Pros: "Not much - the snacks"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive. The food, excellent for coach class; we even had a welcome cocktail. We even managed to take off early."
Cons: "When you travel in the coach class, you know you won't get a much comfort but the seat was acceptable and I had more legroom than expected."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding and departing. Wonderful and friendly staff."
Cons: "Honestly, everything was great. Food and entertainment were a little lacking but for a 3 hour flight it was more than acceptable."
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Not so crapped seats"
Cons: "Middle seat. Big guys dont fit well there"
Pros: "Crew was very sweet"
Pros: "Very helpful flight crew."
Cons: "A little unexpectedly bumpy."
Cons: "No room to move, too hot, no sound when trying to watch movies."
Pros: "Too long to connect from Atlanta to Minneapolis after 6 hrs layover in Amsterdam."
Cons: "Have all Minneapolis passengers go direct from Amsterdam to Minneapolis"
Pros: "Surprisingly comfortable for such a short flight. The approach is impressive. Friendly attendants and captain kept everyone updated when there was a slight delay. Was overall a really nice flight"
Pros: "Friendly and cheerful!"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Not enough leg room in seat"
Pros: "Basic flight... likedthe tomato juice and snack mix"
Cons: "Announcements startled me every time due to volume"
Pros: "Everything on time, friendly and helpful attendants"
Cons: "Why does boarding have to happen with several other flights, gets confusing. Have other flights board at a different time or from another gate far away so customers don't get confused"
Pros: "Flight was very quick. Boarding was very fast for such a small plane."
Cons: "Turbulence. Tiny carry-on area, tiny bathroom. Makes sense for such a small plane though."
Cons: "Delta’s computer system was down. Long wait at the counter even though I did web check-in."
Pros: "This was my cousins first time flying and the Flight Attendants made her feel very welcomed. They all were very personable."
Pros: "Coldest flight I’ve ever taken. Not sure why I paid $60 to fly in comfort when I had to endure the arctic temperatures. Free WiFi never worked once either."
Cons: "That I was going to be charged $125 for oversized luggage unti"
Pros: "the movies are great. all the entertainment is."
Cons: "lack of over head space, personal room."
Pros: "Nice enough crew"
Cons: "The MD88 is such a crappy plane for anyone that wasn't born a dwarf. I'm tired of filling out these and yet you do nothing about it. It is criminal to cram is in like sardines like this."
Cons: "Aircraft seemed shabby despite refresh of Comfort Plus, food was really mediocre. Steer clear of the Asian Veg option."
Pros: "Flight less than 2/3 full, lots of room for comfort. On time, no need to gate check carry on."
Cons: "nothing, it was great."
Cons: "Delayed so I was not home until middle of the night."
Cons: "The crew was extremely rude. I was skipped got beverages twice and when I rang the bell the flight attendant gave me a lot of attitude. No one likes to fly for 10 hours, I get it, but it was extremely unprofessional."
Pros: "Service was fast and the inflight entertainment is free. Lots of movies to chose from, which is nice for the long flight."
Cons: "It was the most cramped I have ever felt in a plane and also the longest flight. Horrible combination. Some of the crew were snippy."
Pros: "The stewards and flight was overall fine. In fact I found the stewards to Atlanta from West Palm very accommodating."
Cons: "I have reservation on booking Comfort plus next time I fly though. There appeared to be no difference in the seating or service as economy. A lesson learn I guess. I will atillflyDelta but stick to economy. I saw no perks"
Pros: "I didn't like much about this flight."
Cons: "Flight left late. When we landed the sky bridge was broken so we had to walk outside, which isn't a big deal but it took a while sitting on the runway for the stairs to come. Then we proceeded to baggage claim and waited a few minutes and one of our 2 bags was there. The crew member then said "that's everything. If you're missing bags come see us." Well about 5 people on a small flight had to see them. My bag was stuck in JFK. I was told id have to come back to the airport tomorrow. At this point id been traveling for close to 24 hours. Im not a happy camper. I usually fly JetBlue and this has never happened with them. Delta acted like its a normal thing with them. I paid 25 dollars to check each bag. How can both my bags not reach their final destination together and how come this seems like a normal procedure for Delta. I paid you for a service and now I have to drive back to the airport or wait for you at home to deliver my bags whenever Delta feels like it. I probably won't fly Delta again unless I absolutely have to."
Pros: "The staff was incredible the plane was great. right on time"
Cons: "start from the back to the front for god's sake! crew is often focused more on process than customer service."
Pros: "Everything. I really loved that I could track where my checked luggage was, so when I arrived to my final destination I knew my bag was going to be there. The individual TV for my seat, so I could watch what I wanted. Having an USB port to charge my devices."
Cons: "Liked everything."
Pros: "The courtesy of the staff and the seats in the "delta comfort" section."
Cons: "Too many interruptions. i'm not sure if there is a way but there should be a way to only serve only those who are requesting service."
Pros: "I was comfortable in my seat, with the pilot and the stewardesses."
Cons: "I was charged for my carry-on bag. My first time flying I didn't know that I could have a carry-on and pocketbook to take with me."
Pros: "Inflight entertainment"
Cons: "the flight attendant on my first flight was awful. Ride and incompetent. The second flight was delayed 1.5 hours with no explanation and now we are waiting for our fate to open up in Denver. We were told it would be 5 minutes but so far it has been 30."
Cons: "It was belated by 2.5 hrs :("
Cons: "1. Boarding order is not by seating making boarding very inefficient"
Cons: "No westjet checkin area and no signage. Staff didn't know what was going on."
Cons: "Aeromexico has terrible customer services from check in to over the phone. There are no other options and I can't believe Delta works w/ them. Just no words to describe the horrible experience all around."
Major delay on the inbound plane meant that I missed my connection.
PlusPoints are useless if seats are so rarely available.
Apart from the delays in terms of departure times, the airline experience was so bad, given the medical incident from a passenger sitting at the back of the plane. I was so close to it, and was utterly disappointed by the failure of the cabin crew to control passengers from overcrowding the sick passenger and allow the crew to administer the necessary medical intervention. It all amounted to compromised safety at 30000 feet, and seriously more training on the part of the airline is required in this regard. The other issue I realised is lack of cleanliness and care on the part of cabin staff, with one lady spilling food next to where I was sitting and ignoring the incident completely. I had to ask another to intervene and for which only superficial help was rendered. This is not what I expected, but this is what I got and speaks volumes to a cabin crew which is all female, mature/elderly, and expected to be more hands on to problems of this nature. The food is terrible in economy class, with options very limited. I opted for chicken, but did not know that it had curry in it, so I could not eat my meal further, and so no need to ask for the vegetarian option.
Boarding and crew were great! Most of the TVs did not work.
Great direct flight. Zero complaints.
Pros: "All the flights were on time."
Pros: "did not take this flight - had to rebook straight to boston because of delays"
Pros: "No delays all on time United gets A+ for service"
Pros: "Good flight, nice staff."
Cons: "Food not the greatest and flight over-crowded."
Pros: "honestly, nothing..."
Cons: "there was a huge delay and we got no real explanation or compensation"
Pros: "Very helpful, took time to assist me with using computer to print boarding passes. Security check was quick."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "The flight going to Newark was cancelled due to the weather. The service person was prompt to changed our flight to Washington, DC."
Cons: "Due to staffing problems the flight going to DC left Richmond 1.5 hours late. The plane left at 4pm and our connecting flight to Rome was starting boarding at 425pm. It was very stressful. I can understand changes due to weather but there is no excuse when it comes to staffing."
Pros: "Large plane. Cheerful Staff. Food was good as airline food goes. Power and video at every seat. And there was enough room for carry on bags."
Cons: "Seat didn’t really recline. Couldn’t sleep"
Cons: "Can’t charge devices. Have to pay for watching movies. Pay for suitcase!"
Pros: "No carry-on charge, free beverages, in flight entertainment, great movie selections"
Pros: "The plane, crew and boarding was great, and the food and drinks were quite good. Legroom in standard economy class was passable for a 6'2" person."
Cons: "I booked through the United website as trip from US, have Silver status on United, and Lufthansa's policies of not allowing advance (1-2 mo before flight) seat selection (never on UA nor LH websites) are just horrible. Hard to get through on 800 number, and 1 day before trip answer was still to do it in Frankfurt. Economy plus was $1000 more/person, and even then no guarantee I could choose a seat far in advance. Then, at computer kiosk in Frankfurt, they had a wrong diagram of the plane,as we ended up on what turned out to be a no-recline row which I would never get. I'm 6'2", 230lbs, and wasn't able to sleep on that flight. Had I been able to reserve a seat behind a bulkhead or in exit row 2mos in advance, I would have been fine."
Pros: "I purchased a ticket for my 18 year old dog $ 125.00 each way to fly with me to Kalispell and back. She is so old that she can not SEE, HEAR, or BARK any longer. I understood she needed to be under the seat for take off and landing but I was told by the ticket agent and flight attendants on my first flight that she could sit on my lap during the flight. Everything was great on the way there. On the returning flight,.... the flight attendant was so RUDE to me. She saw that after we were airborne and at a steady altitude, I brought my dog "Kacey" up into my lap. She immediately raised her voice and stated the dog needed to remain on the ground. I politely explained her condition BUT she refused to listen to anything. I put my poor old dog back under the seat. After approx 20 min I could hear her patting very loud. I lifted her again and asked a different flight attendant for some water. She was very hot on the floor. Or course, the flight attendant saw my little chihuahua drinking the water and said that after she drinks a little more, she must remain under the seat. By now, my husband is getting annoyed. He tried explaining to the flight attendant the medical needs that my dog has " she's on protein shakes" which were approved their security. and how fragile she is. She can't BARK, SEE, or HEAR. Yes, we will be putting her down soon but we took her to Montana for my daughter to say her GOODBYES!! Sorry to say, but that flight attendant has turned me away from UNITED AIR LINES forever. Feel free to call me 352-804-8344. You may send this to UNITED AIRLINES too!! Thanks Karen Hope"
Pros: "I slept the whole way."
Pros: "The flight was fast."
Cons: "The flight attendant was an angry person. Her attitude was appalling."

Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "This flight was the worst experience I ever had. 7 hours delay with no compensation at all. I loss one day of my job. I called united customer service and they couldn't help me. I won't flight on united never again."

Cons: "TSA, food was bad in first class,"

Pros: "Flight was quick, efficient and courteous flight attendants."
Pros: "The plane boarded smoothly and on time"
Cons: "The flight attendants ran over my foot with the cart and they kept bumping people as they went down the isle. I don't blame them for bumping into the passengers as much as the aisles being too narrow. The worst part, however, was the television. On my flight to California two weeks ago we had free television and movies. On the flight today we couldn't get anything without paying eight dollars. Ridiculous!!!"

I didn't really mind. Just happy to go home in comfort with my upgraded exit aisle seat and no one next to me."
Pros: "Some gate agents were very helpful and friendly with making (gratis) layover changes due to weather issues in my original layover city."
Cons: "They don't assign seats ahead of time, in FCA...too much "juggling" people around prior to boarding."
Pros: "The flight was a lot more than what I had expected. I have spent my life staying in many hotel rooms and my fair share in planes, this was an excellent flight. It was on time both from Appleton to Chicago and Chicago to Houston. I have no complaints."
Pros: "The employees were very helpful."
Cons: "Leg room was good in exit row seat but the seat itself was awful. Very uncomfortable. Having flown in exit row sests before was surprised at hiw bad it was."
